to be back in iowa. [applause] don't think this is the last you're going to see of me and paul ryan. this state may be the state that decides what kind of an america we're going to have and what kind of lives our families are going to have. we're counting on you. and the choice you make this november will shape great things. historic things. and those things will determine the most important and intimate things in our lives. in the lives of our homes, our families, our loved ones. this is an election about america. it's an election about the american family. now all leches matter, of course. but this one matters a great deal. over the years of our nation's history, choices our fellow citizens have made have changed the country's course. they were turning points of defining consequence. we're today at a turning point. our national debt and liabilities threaten to crush our future. our economy struggles under the weight of government and fails to create the essential growth and employment we need. the same -- at the same time, emerging powers seek to shape the world in their image. ch
are also going nonstop. vice president joe biden in colorado today, and paul ryan in pennsylvania, virginia, florida, and ohio. ohio could be the biggest battleground of the election, and the race there is tight. a just released cnn-orc poll shows obama ahead by just three points, well within the margin of error. an nbc "wall street journal" marist poll shows a wider gap with obama leading by six points. president obama is speaking at a rally in mentor, ohio, in hour. dan lothian is there along with him. dan, good morning. ohio certainly critical to these candidates. what line of attack is the president expected to take there to widen his lead? >> well, you know, randi, it continues to be one that focus on the auto industry. i'm told by a campaign official that the president will continue that theme that he was pushing yesterday while campaigning here in ohio, that the auto bailout which he pushed, which he says that mitt romney did not support, helped to save thousands of jobs here in an area that the auto industry is very critical to employment here, so that's the theme that the president
wdelete it is a plan. paul ryan has a plan. -- at least it is a plan. paul ryan has a plan. tommy thompson has a plant. president barack obama has the plant. tammy baldwin has no plans. >> we do know something about his brand new plan on medicare and that is that health costs in the federal employee health benefit program are increasing at a rate of 40% faster than traditional medicare. that gives you a sense. it is not a full score. but that is something we do know. that would not save us money. it would shift a huge burden to seniors. this idea that he never supported the voucher program, he ran ads in his primary sang out will be the 51st vote to pass the paul ryan budget which contains this plan. last summer, he stood on the stage and talked about his support for this plan. what have i done? i worked hard on the affordable care act that has significant sections on medicare. in that, we extended the solvency of medicare by 10 years. this is not the end of our work but it is a strong beginning. i was very involved in that. when tommy thompson ran medicare from 2001 until 2005, the progra

and they said it would save medicare. i would like to see it. at least it's a plan. paul ryan has a plan. tommy thompson has a plan. we have been waiting for months and years for barack obama to get a plan and tammy baldwin. all they can say is we don't have a plan, we're just going to stand by and and lead to rome burned and see medicare collapse. that's not a smart plan. >> first of all, we do know something about his grand plan on medicare. that is that health costs in the federal employee health benefits program are increasing at a rate of 40% faster than traditional medicare. so that gives you a sense, it's not a full score from cbo, is something we do know from the track record. this does not save us money. it would shift a huge burden to seniors. second, this idea that he never supported the voucher program, he ran ads in his primary say i will be the 51st vote to pass the paul ryan budget, which contains this plant. -- plan. last summer at the republican state convention he stood on the stage and talk about his support for. -- his support for that plan. third, what have i done, i worked
. your question goes to mr. murphy. >> we have seen different numbers on what the paul ryan plan would do in the fact to increase costs to seniors, anywhere from $6,350 to about $200 a month. what kind of number can we look at and say this is what a cut will look like under this plan because of a large area of the budget that needs to be looked at? >> that is the kaiser family foundation study. under the ryan plan, 60% of seniors will face cost increases. this is something that needs to be addressed. under their plan, we end medicare as we know it. we need to reach across the aisle and ensure that medicare is there for generations to come. i was talking to seniors and you could see the fear in their eyes, worrying that medicare will be taken from them. we cannot let it happen. we need real solutions. under the affordable care act, they found inefficiencies and they have taken back away from insurance company executives, from the pharmaceuticals, and given it back to seniors, this is what we need to do to bring down the long term cost curve that is driving our costs through the roof. >> we

to clear things up, had you been in congress you would've voted no on paul ryan's budget? collins: that is correct that i would've voted no on paul ryan's budget. i've told that to ms. hochul. i can tell you how many times. she disregards the truth. she continued to say this but maybe hopefully now this will be the last time she says it. try to this is the first, i understand debate on conversion, your pulse or be so you need to say that now. but here's the difference between. you have already said when you get to congress you will never vote with the party. and yet you have just said the democrats -- its ryan budget three comes out next thing in your in congress, which is a? you're talking out of both sides of your mouth, chris. you said you'd never vote with the democrats. you said you wouldn't go for the ryan budget. you go back and forth and say what you want. collins: ms. hochul, that's just a to at all. you like to put words in my mouth. debuts need to know i'm going to be fighting for small business all the time, not have the time like you. i'm going to be fighting for our
of this campaign talking about small things, but the challenge we face are real and big. that is why paul ryan and i are focused on how we can make our way back to prosperity and opportunity, how we can rebuild a strong military and fashion a strong economy. the choice before you is clear. we can wait four more years for real change or we can take things in in a new direction in just a few short days. on tuesday, the choice is yours. our destiny is in your hands. i hope to have your support and your vote. thank you and god bless america. >> presidential candidate mitt romney given the republican weekly address. and before that, of obama giving his weekly address. all day, c-span is bringing you the dates from some of the most hotly contested senate and congress races around the country. here are the numbers to call to share your thoughts. you can also send us a tweet. let's get to the phones and hear what you have to say. anthony is in cedar rapids. were you watching the debate of iowa oppose a fourth? fourth?s caller: i have been writing to the president for some time on how to actually creat

[applause] >> let me ask you, will you do everything you can do to ensure we can bring back america's promise. are you going to do it? put up your hand if you're going to make phone calls, commit to mitt today. let me see your hands. commit to mitt. this year, in ohio, you can commit early to mitt. go down to lorraine, 1985 north ridge road and vote early. you can leave after the event here -- and then on election day we cna find five people we know to get to the polls to commit to mitt. going for it. and we have to help the republican team. he needs a team that is with him. we have to make sure jim is reelected. jim jordan, bob gibbs are here. and i want to be the senior senator from ohio. we need josh mandel in ohio. we need him now. you know, president obama -- over the last four years has made a lot of decisions. some of them, he siad would result in new jobs that haven't happened. he said he'd cut the deficit. it hasn't happened. we have someone who is running for president who knows how to bring back jobs. he has the experience. he has the experience and
uaw workers that are here. it is the policies that mitt romney and paul ryan want to put in place that will make the auto industry strong -- [indiscernbile] he wants sensible regulations. he wants tax reform that will ensure we can get the auto companies back on their feet. he wants to make sure that trade is fair. he wants workers trained to work better for them. he wants their energy costs now. that is what will keep energy -- otter jobs here in ohio. that is what mitt romney is going to. balks, we are in the fourth quarter. the score is tied. we're in the red zone. we got the momentum on our side. are we going to be sure that we take mitt romney over the goal line in the next eight days? ladies and gentlemen, the next president of the united states, mitt romney. b >> thank you. what an avon lake welcome. thank you so very much. thank you, senator portman, and the lieutenant governor has been going with us all over the state. her support means everything in the world. the senator was my sparring partner. he was really strong. i finally -- it is nice not to argue with him all the
this year, governor romney has been here 6. paul ryan may be eligible to vote, he's been here that much. joe biden has been here once. we have had a lot of its from michelle obama. we have seen plenty of action this cycle. host: bill clinton could be coming to your state. he is scheduled to campaign for the president today in colorado. he was supposed to be in colorado springs tuesday but cancelled due to the storm. guest: pending the outcome of the storm on the east coast, we will see both candidates later in the week. governor romney was here last week and held a rally at red rock and thousands were turned away. the following day, he held a -- president obama held a rally in denver and drew a crowd estimated at 16,000. the governor this week has reserved an amphitheater in the southern suburbs of has a capacity of 18,000 people. there were looking at going to boulder to hold a rally there. they're certainly trying to turn out a lot of voters with momentum. >> one week to go and following on -- host: of one week to go and looking at the momentum in colorado. the numbers are on your screen.
to kick off the second event of the day in south florida. congressman paul ryan is in wisconsin. vice president joe biden attending rallies in florida and bill clinton is in iowa for the obama campaign, of course. let's bring in the political panel. david goodfriend and rachel smelkin. thank you both for your time. >> thank you. >> thank you. >> i want to get to this poll showing the president still holding on to his lead in ohio, florida and virginia. we know that when you look at national polls, depending on which one, a different picture but it is about the battlegrounds and likely voters here. what do we make of the new polls? >> hurricane sandy introduced a massive unknown in to the final days of the race and that's the first thing. we are not yet seeing that reflikted in the polling. having said that, it looks for the president's team like they're still holding on in ohio. the margins closed there as in other battleground states but that's an all-important state for both campaigns to win this election, mitt romney is almost going to have to win ohio if not he's going to have to
: absolutely not. i will see not see medicare vow chirrized. i know, this plan is what the paul ryan has bet his career on. but it would immediately have negative impacts on our seniors. i think protecting medicare is absolutely essential. it's why i cut sub subsidizes to insurance companies so we can put more money back in to medicare. not what you hear from my opponent. we took medicare saving from the insurance company and piled it in to filling the doughnut hole and put it in to preventive programs and extending the life of medicare. i won't see the program vowtured. my father had a tough year. unfortunately he's used medicare a lot this year. it was there for him. it was there for my mother when she had to taken over many of the family duties he had previously filled. no, i won't support that plan. >> moderator: heather? wilson: medicare is important now and in the future. we're to do things to save it. i actually don't like this part of congressman ryan's voucherrized approach. i support medicare advantage. that's a program here in new mexico four out of ten seniors choose to have. i w
and neck and much paul ryan was in the buckeye state trying to get last minute votes. >> we need your help. this is a big deal. we are not picking a president for four years here. we are choosing a path for this country that will last a generation. >>> mitt romney is going to stay in ohio until tuesday. the president is scheduled to appear with bill clinton in ohio this afternoon. it is a little over a week away. >> they are taking advantage of the voting and poll heading to the polls election day. they stood in long lines to vote and many folks were shocked by the poll turnouts. this is the first time it is held on a saturday. early voting end on friday. in florida, more than half the voters are taking advantage of early voting. both president obama and mitt romney are encouraging early voting but in states where hurricane sandy is expected to hit. election workers are expecting a much lower early voting turnout. >>> the daughter of marco rubio is recovering following an accident. the senator was notified about the accident yesterday while at a rally with presidential candidate company mi
budget this year was $1 trillion in deficits. the paul ryan budget which passed the u.s. house was $600 billion in deficit. i have the courage to submit a balanced budget if i'm elected president right after i'm inaugurated. secondly, i am for jobs and america for american citizens first, and the only candidate that has called for a near complete moritorium on green card admissions to the united states until unemployment is under 5%. it makes no sense to bring in so many foreign workers when our unemployment is so high in this country. [applause] secondly, third, we -- >> running low on time. >> we need the super p.a.c.sit n and political action committees, that would be one of the things to open up our country for greater process and greater voice by the people, and finally, we need term limits. it is time to do the best job in congress instead of the election and fund raiser. >> now an opening statement from governor johnson. >> the country is in really deep trouble. we should not bomb iran. [applause] we should end the war in afghanistan tomorrow. bring the troops home tomorrow. [che
, if you. gill: it's okay. it's easy to say he wouldn't cut pell grants, as paul ryan pell grants, as paul ryan monster, but it's important to understand where these two campaigns come from. this is an insider against an outsider. mr. davis recently had a fundraiser in missouri. the u.s. chamber of commerce, they are helping him and they are not doing it out of the goodness of their heart. they are doing it because they expect something in return they get washington dc. that would be to stand up for a budget such as paul ryan proposes. it increases pain and difficulty for college kids. i think college needs to be more accessible and we need to make it more portable. as i indicated, i think the programs should be readily available to young people such as yourself. being that 75% of my funding comes from people just like you, ordinary citizens, an average donation of $61, the proof is in the pudding. that is why i'm going to washington, to work on your behalf to and make sure you can get college and graduate and hopefully work to create jobs again within this economy. so that we don't have t
one of the reason i voted against the paul ryan budget. it changes in medicare i didn't believe was in the best interest of montana senior. my best interest i will always vote, i never vote to prizetize social security or medicare. i believe that they are sound and i believe that they are for for anybody on it now or going to be on it soon. >> moderator: senator tester. tester: in twine the record is clear. you voted to make it to a voucher system. congressman ryan bill. you have been on the platform before. talk abouting what you will never do. for instance, a few years back you talked about never taking pay raise. i believe last count probably five, so can we believe you this time? are you going continue do things like vote to make medicare in to a voucher system. rehberg: it's obviously you'll do anything to keep your job. [inaudible] i have never voted for a pay raise. you have. you voted for a pay raise just several months ago in the united states senate. and i never have voted for a pay raise. and i don't prospective the privatization of social security for anybody on it o
on the middle class taxpayers backs. they also endorsed the paul ryan budget that doubles down on the george bush's failed policies that give enormous tax giveaways to the wealthiest among us while cutting the needed programs like pell grants and medicare it's not the right solution. we need real tax reform that makes a difference and a good difference for our middle class. that includes allowing the bush tax cut at the top end to expire and a means of allowing hedge funds, ensuring that hedge fund managers take facts on their income as income and the kilby have tax relief for the small businesses and middle class. .. one i strongly favor is updating our electrical grid in new york. we waste 10% of our energy because of the outdated grid. fixing that will give us jobs and improve our energy future. the same can be said of many of the renewable options in upstate new york. we have biofuel projects and solar and wind here in upstate new york. solid investment will create jobs and improve energy independence. the keystone pipeline was made into a political football. the president wanted to stud
both looking over their shoulders. >> you mentioned paul ryan. of course i cannot go on without asking about him and the role that he has played in this congress and the degree to which his celebrity is embraced by other republicans who are presumably, as you say, as ambitious as the. he is the one who kind of got out. he is the one who rose above the others to be plucked as mitt romney's running mate. is everybody in the republican leaders have for that matter the republican ranks happy to see in there? is the resentment of him? to their respective as much as they are said to for his brain and his facility with numbers? >> they do respect him, and i think that there are those -- the people who resent and distressed paul ryan in the republican party are the members of the so-called tuesday group, which is the group, the waiting in member group of moderate republicans in the hand. they resented the imposition, the so-called ryan budget as the republican house budget. that budget, by the way, and brian's budget pancaking around for several years when he was the ranking member of the hous
. i would like to see it. i want to score it, but at least it's a plan. paul ryan's got a plan, tommy tompson's got a plan. we waited for months and years for barack obama to have a plan, tammy baldwin to have a plan. they say we have no plan, just stand by and play a harp while rome burns and see medicare collapse. that's not a smart plan. >> moderator: congresswoman? baldwin: first of all, we know something about the brand new plan on medicare, and that is that health costs in the federal employee health benefit program are increasing at a rate of 40% faster than traditional medicare. that gives you a sense. it's not a full score from cbo, but that ising? we know with the track record. it's not saving us money. it shifts a burden to seniors. secondly, this idea that he never sported the voucher program. he ran ads in the pry -- primary saying i'm the 51st vote to pass the ryan budget that contains this plan. in the republican state convention last summer, he stood on the stage and talked about the support for this map. you know, the tea party group, who better than me to end medicar
